【摘要】By the promulgation of the Regulations of the People's Republic of China on Anti-dumping and Anti-subsidy in 1997(1997 Regulations), China started anti-dumping investigations against imported products. Particularly since its accession to the World Trade Organisation (WTO) in 2001, China has become one of the most active WTO members in terms of initiating anti-dumping investigations. Until May 2006, a total of 44 investigation hace been filed against imports, most of which ended with the imposition of high duties.
The 1997 Regulations were split in November 2001 into the Regulations of the People’s Republic of China on Anti dumping (Anti-dumping Regulations) and Regulations of the People’s Republic of China on Anti-subsidy. In April 2004, the Anti-dumping Regulations were further revised to reflect the incorporation of the Investigation Bureau of Industrial Injury(IBII) – one of the investigatory authorities previously part of the State Economic and Trade Commission – into the Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM). IBII, together with the Bureau of Fair Trade of Imports and Exports (BOFT), is thus under a single, unified authority. The revision also incorporated certain practices developed in the post-accession period.
